McLaren has put the MP4-30 through its paces ahead of the second pre-season test during a filming day in Barcelona.

The team's start to life with Honda power has been a frustrating one, with just 79 laps completed over four days in Jerez earlier this month. When the team did run it was a long way off the pace though it remains confident it will be competitive once its engine is turned up fully.

With the second test of the winter to start in Barcelona on Thursday, McLaren arrived at the Spanish circuit early to complete a filming day with Jenson Button. Regulations state teams are allowed two 'promotional events' a year, with each limited to a maximum of 100km a day.
